(4) By a Lawyer concerning the Great Commandment in the Law
22:34-40

34 aBut the Pharisees, when they heard that He had muzzled the Sadducees, gathered themselves together.

35 And one of them, a 1alawyer, asked Him a question, btesting Him,

36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 And He said to him, a"You shall blove the Lord your God 1with all your heart and 1with all your soul and 1with all your mind.''

38 This is the great and first commandment.

39 And the second is like it: a"You shall love your neighbor as yourself.''

40 On these 1two commandments hang all athe Law and the Prophets.
